Hi Aapo,
I will do something (I'm not good in graphic, again sorry) as soon as I 
I can tell what I think now:
i)   portrait is better;
ii)  full-screen is better (see iv));
iii) I've found  some interesting screen-shots [2] that are similar to 
[1] and improve the playable area;
iv) the win-ce specific area (last row in [2]) can be used for 
frequently used commands 
           (I suggest: quit, save, throw, zap, look, loot and someone 
else... );
v)  about  menu I think that pop-ups like  [3] are the best solution;
vi) it would be nice to resize fonts in both menus and dialog (if possible).

I agree with you, but I don't know the answer.....sorry.
